BIONICLE 2010
• Months have passed since Teridax took over the Matoran universe by the time he has arrived on Bara Magna. [source]

• Tahu and Onua's collaboration in Journey's End Chapter 4 takes place after their mission in Reign of Shadows to destroy the energized protodermis source on Daxia. [source]
• The rest of the Toa Nuva safely left the Matoran universe along with Tahu during the battle. [source]
• All of the Rahkshi caught outside of the Matoran universe were destroyed by the Golden Armor. Those Rahkshi that remained in the Matoran universe are still alive. [source] [source]
• On how Mata Nui was able to drive Teridax back: "A stronger opponent can be felled by a weaker one who is fueled by rage. Mata Nui was fighting FOR something, Makuta basically was not." [source]
• On the smallness of the moon that killed Teridax: "It's quite simple, really. When a celestial body moves through space, parts of it fragment off. What hit Teridax was one of those fragments." "t only makes sense that as a celestial body travels through space at the kind of speed it had to move to achieve this, parts would flake off." It seems to have been a chunk from Aqua Magna, based on the blue coloring. [source] [source] [source]
• On the manner of Teridax's death: "Actually, wasn't my idea. It came from others on the story team. My idea was that Mata Nui fells him then uses his power to cut the robot body open, freeing all the Matoran, etc. Got rejected as being too violent." [source]
• Metru Nui was damaged but not destroyed. The Matoran universe's central processor beneath Metru Nui has been very badly damaged. The rest of the Matoran universe is largely intact. Greg: "Metru Nui does not need to be destroyed for [Teridax] to die. Your brain would not need to be utterly destroyed for you to die, all it would need to do is be damaged in the right places. Makuta was possessing Mata Nui's brain and body, so when brain and body died, so did he." [source] [source] [source]
• On why Kiina was not cursed when she held the Ignika: "…he was simply destined to touch it, because what happened to Mata Nui was destined and she cared about him." [source] [source]
• Tahu is accurate in saying that Mata Nui is not dead. Greg: "I don't see him as dormant. I see him as very aware of what is going on around him, but choosing not to get involved so that the people of SM can build an independent society that is not dependent on him for every answer." [source] [source]
• On what Mata Nui learned on his mission through space: "Mata Nui studied other cultures, and one of the things he learned was that wars were often caused by blind obedience to a being perceived as more powerful (same as what happened with the ELs on Spherus Magna, or in our history, dictators like Hitler). This is why Mata Nui chose to absent himself from the rebuilding of the society -- so that the people of SM won't be dependent on him, or become split between people who follow him and people who don't, etc." [source]
• There is still a small desert left in the Bara Magna region. Although it is lush now, the entire region that was once referred to as Bara Magna is still named so. [source]

BIONICLE STARS

• On whether Tahu will be transformed into a Toa Nuva again soon: "No. The only thing that could do that would be the Ignika, and it is not active right now." [source]
• On Tahu's Golden Armor powers: "Actually, as you will see at the end of the online novel, Tahu has a lot of new powers quite apart from the armor." [source]
• Nektann more than likely escaped after the battle and is somewhere on Bara Magna. [source]

GOLDEN ARMOR
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «
• Ultimately the Golden Armor's function was to send out bolts of energy that incinerated the Kraata of the invading Rahkshi force, thus ending the Rahkshi threat and breaking the back of Makuta's army. [source]
• The Golden Armor was specifically designed to kill Rahkshi in the event that they ran amok. [source]
• The Great Beings, through instructions embedded in Mata Nui's programming for creating the Makuta, pre-determined that the Makuta would develop the ability to produce Kraata, which is why they knew to develop the Golden Armor with the ability to destroy all Kraata. [source]
• The Golden Armor affords its wearer only a one-time use of its power. [source]

POST-BIONICLE 2010
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «
• When the inhabitants of Spherus Magna resettle into new homes, what may happen is that Agori will drift back to where their tribes originally came from and where others of their kind still live. Greg: "I can't see everyone living in just one city when there is an entire planet to live on." [source] [source]
• Any Glatorian who were stranded on Bota Magna will likely join in the new social order on Spherus Magna. [source]
• On the fate of the Toa Nuva: "I don't expect the Nuva to stay together as a team. The point of this society is it needs to be integrated, not just everyone staying with everyone they already know. I expect Gali and Lewa to perhaps team up with Kiina and Gelu, etc., as opposed to saying with their fellow Toa." [source]
• With its consciousness destroyed, within three days the Matoran universe will become devoid of heat and light and will become largely uninhabitable. Anyone to stay in the Matoran universe would have to be able to survive in those conditions. The robot's artificial gravity stabilizers will also degrade, and the Matoran universe will become inverted as the robot is lying on its front. [source] [source]
• Although it is not of anyone's immediate concern, the denizens of the new Spherus Magna will likely strip the robot down for parts and technology. [source]
• The Turaga are still alive. [source]
• With Tren Krom still trapped in the Matoran universe, his fate is unclear and will be dealt with later. [source]
• With Makuta defeated, the Visorak will most likely escape into the Desert or Jungle of Spherus Magna and become wildlife. [source] [source]
• The Zyglak will continue to shun the rest of society, since they hate anyone who follows Mata Nui. [source]
• On the fate of Lehvak-Kal: "Depends. If Aqua Magna moved slowly, they might have been pulled along with it. If it moved quickly, they would have been ripped out of orbit and are now floating in the void." [source]
• The dust clouds surrounding Spherus Magna are still out there. [source]

MATORAN UNIVERSE
• Takua was the first Matoran ever to be created. [source]
• Greg would say a Matoran's gender is based on its AI programming. [source]
• Like the inhabitants of the Matoran universe, Mata Nui was an AI which exceeded the aims and visions of its creators. [source]
• The coloration for the element of Gravity is purple and black. [source]
• On the purpose of the southern islands in the Matoran universe: "I see all the land masses as basically being the same as organs in our bodies are." [source]

MISCELLANEOUS
• Greg would say that the Spear of Fusion would be able to meld Kanohi together. [source]
• Greg would guess that the Bahrag could possibly create new Bohrok-Kal with different powers. [source]
• Like Roodaka's mutation power, the Mask of Mutation can alter a being's powers. [source]
• On why the Makuta did not simply use Masks of Mutation to create new Rahi: "Well, for one thing, they don't all have Masks of Mutation. And I sort of see it as the difference between making beef stew from scratch or buying it pre-made and putting it in a microwave. The Makuta are artists and they like putting in the time it takes to do it with viruses as opposed to just zipping things into being with the mask." [source]
• The organic birds seen on the island of Mata Nui were birds from Spherus Magna which fed on fish and nested on the water and therefore did not need land to survive. [source]
• Pridak was never actually able to reform the League of Six Kingdom's before Makuta's defeat. [source]
• Brutaka probably had his Olmak even before he joined the Order of Mata Nui. [source]
• All the Toa Hagah teams probably had six members, although the teams were not all made up of Toa of the six classic elements. [source]
• The Exo-Toa that the Toa Mata found in the Bohrok nests were placed there by the Brotherhood of Makuta as a failsafe in case the Bohrok were ever released prematurely and the Bahrag needed to be suppressed. [source]

BIONICLE 2009
• The reason Mata Nui would be able to give elemental powers to a Glatorian but not to an Agori is that Glatorian are physically stronger and more durable as a species than Agori are, and therefore able to handle the increased power where Agori cannot. [source]

GREAT BEINGS
• On how energized protodermis is related to protodermis: "We don't know that it is, simply that the GBs named the substance energized protodermis. It is possible they detected some similar properties to liquid protodermis." [source]
• Energized protodermis is not a necessary element for making protodermis. [source]
• The Great Beings named protodermis before they named energized protodermis. [source]
• The prototype robot was never designed for Mata Nui's use. [source]
• When the Great Beings had no other use for the prototype's power source, they placed it in the protection of the Valley of the Maze to keep the Element Lords from getting their hands on it. [source]
• The prototype power source did not feed into the Great Volcano's power plant. [source]
• On why the Great Beings did not try to evacuate the people of Spherus Magna before the Shattering: "The Shattering was a very abrupt event, although they knew there was a definite potential for it to happen. But if they could not get the war to stop, how would they convince everyone to board rockets and escape the planet because of a disaster that hadn't happened yet and that they probably would not believe ever would happen? And once it had happened, you more than likely would have had another war as people fought to be the first in the rockets and to keep opposing tribes out. So it wouldn't have ended well." [source]

STORY PLANS
• On why Denmark has still forbidden Greg to discuss the Great Beings: "If I knew, I would tell you [...] All I can say is I wanted to show a GB (at least the hand of one) in the graphic novels and was told no. Who knows, if someone in Denmark wants to keep BIONICLE in their back pocket in case they need it again, maybe they are thinking a future story would be built around the GBs. I really don't know." [source]
• Greg has no plans to bring Toa Ignika back. [source]
• Greg plans to write one more chapter of Reign of Shadows; it ends this month. [source] [source]
• Sahmad's Tale will run longer than Reign of Shadows, and new serials will start in April once the others end. [source] [source]

On the manner of Teridax's death: "Actually, wasn't my idea. It came from others on the story team. My idea was that Mata Nui fells him then uses his power to cut the robot body open, freeing all the Matoran, etc. Got rejected as being too violent."

 

So tearing him open is too violent, but giving him an agonizing death from a moon crushing his skull isn't? Strange.

 

On what Mata Nui learned on his mission through space: "Mata Nui studied other cultures, and one of the things he learned was that wars were often caused by blind obedience to a being perceived as more powerful (same as what happened with the ELs on Spherus Magna, or in our history, dictators like Hitler). This is why Mata Nui chose to absent himself from the rebuilding of the society -- so that the people of SM won't be dependent on him, or become split between people who follow him and people who don't, etc."

 

Reminiscent of Dune, awesome.
